So, the root of this problem is in ALPS firmware which provides wrong
information to kernel?

Masaki, I have two questions:

1) Can ALPS or Lenovo release a new firmware update for this Thinkpad to
fix this issue?

2) Have all Thinkpad L570 machines trackpoint?

Dmitry, as a workaround for firmware bug on particular notebook, would
not be better to check DMI information and DMI based hook?
